Louisville and coach Scott Satterfield entered the season as chic picks to challenge for ACC supremacy. But, at 3-7, the Cardinals have become one of the biggest disappointments in the country. Things apparently are going from bad to worse -- and Satterfield is the one to blame.
He was asked during his press conference on Monday the differences in how players and coaches treat their commitments to their schools and football programs. It's safe to say that the second-year coach doesn't exactly show a lot of sympathy towards the players on his roster.
"As players, it's a little bit different than coaches," he said. "Sometimes we like to lump coaches in with players. As a player, you're there for three to four years and then you're done. As players, you don't have a family. It's just you. As coaches … and I'm just thinking in general terms here … coaches have wives and kids. As a job, are they going to be a job at 40 years? There are a lot of different things that are involved in coaching. With players, like I said, it's three to four years, and they have to be all in."
He went on to describe what "all in" means in terms of how players approach college football.
